1.8 million adults in Scotland have seen finances worsen during pandemic
Over 1.8 million adults in Scotland have seen their finances get worse during the Covid pandemic, according to new analysis from Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS).
Polling for the charity by YouGov found 41 per cent of Scottish adults found their financial position got worse during the pandemic, with 15 per cent saying their position has got a lot worse.
Taking into account Scotland’s adult working age population, this would represent 1.82 million people across the country.
With household budgets set to take a battering in the coming months with rising energy bills and prices in the shops, CAS has today launched a new campaign called Debt Happens .
The campaign seeks to encourage people that they are not alone in facing debt and to get advice from across the Citizens Advice network.
